salt.proxy.fx2: dictionary changed size during iteration #48367

Description of Issue/Question

The "chconfig" function inside the salt.proxy.fx2 module causes a Python runtime error trying to modify the kwargs dictionary while iterating over it:

The minion function caused an exception: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/", line 1606, in _thread_return
    return_data = minion_instance.executors[fname](opts, data, func, args, kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/executors/", line 12, in execute
    return func(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/modules/", line 52, in cmd
    return __proxy__[proxycmd](cmd, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/proxy/", line 331, in chconfig
    for k in kwargs:
RuntimeError: dictionary changed size during iteration

Looks like the same situation as issue #46765.

I haven't tested, but I'd expect the following modules to have the same behaviour:

salt.modules.nxos, line 62:

    for k in kwargs:
        if k.startswith('__pub_'):

salt.modules.cisconso, line 152:

    for k in kwargs:
        if k.startswith('__pub_'):

salt.proxy.esxi, line 493:

    for k in kwargs:
        if k.startswith('__pub_'):


Steps to Reproduce Issue

Run "chassis.cmd" with any parameters against a FX2 proxy minion. E.g.:
sudo salt 'dellchassis01' chassis.cmd inventory -t 300 -l debug
